About Frolic!


Hello! I am Chelsea Fuss. I started Frolic! in 2006 as my online inspiration board and a way to share my work. It has since grown into a daily lifestyle blog that is read worldwide and has been recognized by The Wall Street Journal Magazine, The London Times, Lucky and more. I am based in Portland, OR.

Frolic! is devoted to effortless style and simple living. Featuring the latest finds in clothing, interiors, travel, food, art and design, as well as DIY ideas, flower projects and recipes, Frolic! is a
go to resource for design enthusiasts and tastemakers around the globe. 

In another life, I was a floral designer with my own shop. I am now a commercial floral and prop stylist and have loved working with clients like Hanna Andersson, Rejuvenation, HGTV, Kinfolk and more. If you would like to get in touch about a job or just say, “Hello!”, email me at chelseafuss(at)gmail(dot)com. Thanks for visiting!

Social Media Assistant: Caitlin Burkhart is the Social Media Assistant here at Frolic! She helps with coding and researching blog posts as well as many other duties.

Each season, I collaborate with some of my favorite talents in Portland and beyond to create original editorials and projects for Frolic!
